Entries open for JLT MSA Volunteer and Club of the Year Awards


Entries are open for the 2017 JLT MSA Volunteer and Club of the Year awards, which aim to build on last year’s stunning record of over 100 nominations showcasing the very best of UK motorsport.

The Volunteer of the Year awards recognise excellence and commitment across several categories:

  • Steward / Clerk of the Course
  • Technical Official (Scrutineer, Timekeeper etc.)
  • Marshal
  • Medical / Rescue / Recovery / Safety
  • Other, for example non-licensed club officials, committee members or unsung heroes.

A winner will be declared in each category and the best overall entry will be named the JLT MSA Volunteer of the Year. MSA-recognised Regional Associations, Clubs and Groups can submit nominations. Each winner will receive a trophy at the MSA Night of Champions at the Royal Automobile Club in January.

The Club of the Year accolade focuses on the wide range of grassroots motorsport activity providing opportunities for members to compete, volunteer and socialise throughout the year. Clubs can nominate themselves and are encouraged to do so no matter how big or small their contribution to the sport. The winning club will receive a cheque and a trophy at the MSA Night of Champions. The second- and third-placed clubs will also receive trophies and cash awards.

Suze Endean, MSA Development Manager, said: “We want to see as many clubs and volunteers nominated as possible because we know they’re doing great work but we don’t always get to hear about it. Last year’s record entry was overwhelming but we want to build on that in 2017 and celebrate even more UK motorsport success.”

Nomination forms and guidance documents for all the awards can be found here. Entries close on 31 October. Go Motorsport’s Regional Development Officers (RDOs) are available if necessary to help nominators complete their forms.
